Hey! Thanks for joining me! My name is Lauren. I am an elementary school teacher stay at home mom.
I have been married for nine years and adore my two boys. I love being home with my children but do miss the classroom. Having children allows for many teaching and learning opportunities! I incorporate my teaching techniques and love for reading into our daily activities.
The Smile Lines is an education/mom blog, where I share hands-on learning activities and literary ideas for toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary aged children. Blogging allows me to incorporate my creative teaching style with my creative mom style. I enjoy sharing ideas on making motherhood fun and a little easier!
The mission of the Smile Lines is to make parents and teachers lives easier by providing tools for a strong childhood education and ideas for family fun!
The Smile Lines is primarily education based, but you will see the Mom Corner. This is a place where I share my thoughts, experiences, and moments in time. I will share more about me in the Mom Corner and sometimes go on and on! I have a bad habit of doing that!
I often think I am on a secret reality show because random things happen to me! VERY random!! I got hit by a ceiling fan once as I was standing in a restaurant. It literally fell off the ceiling onto my face! I am ok, but it was NUTS!! That is just an example of my reality show life!!
I am obsessed with the beach. I love the smell of the air, sun in my face, sand in my beach bag! Haha! Everything about it! I love chilly September days on the beach in sweatpants and socks!
I started dating my husband when I was 16 years old in JAPAN! The funnier part is that we were on a school trip and actually lived two miles away from each other! You never know!!
I love watching sad shows. Crying, ugly tears, awful storylines… Those are my favorites!
I am excited to have you here and hope to share many learning experiences together!
